Clock – Metropolitan Life Tower


Also infrared. I doubt whether the tower clock has ever been shot with infrared. It shows the wear and tear, and which parts are clean, which parts covered with New York grime. It’s hard to believe the detail in that clock. The face is formed with small mosaic tiles.  Beyond the black dot circle, sea creatures and vines and grapes and shells, and then the larger strange creatures that look like someone has had a bad acid trip. Those were the days of barons and old boys that could afford to put up cathedrals to business.
